The family of Ted Agu, a former Cal football defensive tackle, is filing a wrongful death lawsuit against the school.

A press release from the Agu family’s lawyers, Panish Shea & Boyle, states (via ESPN.com):

“Despite the symptoms which clearly could and should have been observed, UCB coaches and trainers failed to immediately come to Agu’s assistance. It was only after Agu struggled and encountered obvious difficulties for a significant period of time that intervention occurred and he was placed on a cart and taken back towards the stadium where he collapsed for the last time.”
